A dog received serious injuries while being walked in Whitely in Wiltshire.
After running along hedgerow around the edge of a field he returned to his walker with injuries that were described by his owner as "a huge hole in his chest and a large flap of skin hanging down exposing his muscle and nerves".
The dog was taken to the vet where he received 25 stitches in the wound which narrowly missed an artery. No snare was found but the vet described the injuries as being consistent with being entangled in a snare.
